Keene, New Hampshire shares a view of Mount Monadnock with Thornton Wilder’s fictional Our Town. Modern day Keene shares many of America’s challenges—guns, opioids, divergent political views. Brian James Polak’s play explores the way we are today: in our growing up and in our marrying and in our living and in our dying.

Welcome to Keene, New Hampshire is POSTPONED due to Covid-19. Stay tuned for new dates once performances are able to take place! Questions? Email
